I know it’s hard to visualize how the yarn will knit up, so take a peek at the patterns from the Debbie Bliss Rialto DK Print Book drew up for this yarn HERE
Nutmeag made these Striped Baby Legwarmers (free pattern Legwarmies) with 1 ball of Rialto DK Print and 1 ball of contrasting yarn. Or Try Hopscotch (another free pattern) for children’s sizes.
Make a Caramel cardie (free pattern) using Rialto DK Print alternated with a solid contrast colour of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK.
I think it would make an amazing Chevron Baby Blanket (use 4mm needles and cast on 193sts for a blanket about 31″ wide) but keep in mind the striping will be much narrower.
More modest striping options: use Rialto DK Print alternated with a solid contrast colour of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK for pattern OhLaLa.
